After a first path correction of a long ebook script, I found a fatal error on LanguageTool, which actualy prevents me from using it at the current state.
I am using LibreOffice and OpenOffice on a Mac with the latest versions. Both offie sutes show the same error.
Example: Wrongly placed ‘»’ in front of a sentence.
LanguageTool finds it and pops up a dialog.
Delete the » in the LanguageTool dialog to correct the error and click “change/ändern”.
Surprisingly, the error is not being corrected in the text.
As only active button remains »ignore«. If you click it – the entire sentence is deleted in the script.
»Ich glaubte nicht, für dieses Tool bereit zu sein, obwohl es bei der Korrektur sehr hilfreich wäre.
Result after running LanguageTool over it.:
This happens under certain circumstance also with other text structures, such as sentences with multiple koma, or if you have a mix of several mistakes/typos you correct in one dialog. You really need to look after this and fix it. I can’t use Language tool with this error - but i really would like to have a tool like this that works and does not mess up my scripts.
